Our inspirational captain Vincent Kompany launches his official Twitter account today.
You can follow Vincent at @VincentKompany to gain an insight into his world, but more than that, our captain wants your words to inspire the team to victory over United in The FA Cup next Sunday.
Here’s what you need to do to get involved with the #followthecaptain competition and win a fantastic prize including Vincent’s shirt and captains’ armband from the derby game as well as your motivational message being used to spur the team on before the match:
Vincent becomes the latest City player to join the social media phenomenon following Nigel de Jong, Samir Nasri, Sergio Aguero, Micah Richards and Adam Johnson (for a full list click here) and explains:
“I just hope that by joining twitter I can get closer to the people that are prepared to support me in good times and in bad times by giving them an insight into what it is to be playing for the fastest growing club in the world and a young and promising national team.”
The club’s official social media channels will be backing the campaign giving an insight into what to expect if you #followthecaptain and of course, if your winning message gets selected look out for it in action on Tunnel Cam following the game.
